With Dangerous Games: How to Cheat, Matt Forbeck again shows us that he has the art of short novel writing down pat. Immediately dropping us right into the action, he sets a relentless pace worthy of masters of the trade.
In How to Cheat it is Gen Con a year later and Liam is back to launch his first game, Mojo Poker. He finds himself back at the Diana Jones Awards ceremony where he is somewhat of a celebrity due to his actions last year. But his mood turns sour when he finds out that Tollach Spielmacher has not only managed to avoid going to jail but is the winner of the Award for Excellence in Gaming. Tollach has hired three new manages Phil Lacefield Jr, Sean Patrick Fannon, and Anthony Gallela to help try and keep his company afloat after last years scandal. After exchanging a few heated words with Tollach the three try to make peace with Liam but he can't see past his dislike of Tollach. The next morning Liam is informed that there has been another murder. This time it is Phil Lancefiled Jr who was executed in the hallway of his hotel. Once again he is called on by the GenCon staff to liaison with the Indianapolis Police Department and help prevent more people from being targeted.
So I know what your thinking, "Isn't this the same story from the last book?" Sure it is, in the same way that every Sherlock Holmes, Nero Wolf, Miss Marple, Poirot, Colombo, etc story is the same. In this book we see the tone shift from mystery story to suspense story. The final act is straight out of an 80's action film complete with a Rocky style reunion between the hero and his lady. Sometimes it is just fun to sit back and go along for the ride. This book was a quick, fun, read just like book one. I think even more now it has the feel of an old-time serial mystery series. I can't wait to read book three and find out what happens in the final act.
